This set of activities is for the story, The Hat, in the Harcourt Trophies first grade series. These activities can be used for independent skill practice, small group instruction, or for literacy centers. This story's unit includes:
Making Words ~ Students use letter cards to build words with short a. Students record their words on their recording sheet.
My Thinking Hat ~ This graphic organizer can be used with any story! Students draw a picture from the story in a hat and write a sentence describing their picture.
Rhyming Short A Word Match ~ Students play a memory matching game with picture cards with the short a sound. After making their short a matches, students draw and write the words on their recording sheet.
Sentence Sorting ~ Students sort complete/incomplete sentence strips under "Sentence" and "Not a Sentence" heading cards. Students record four different sentence strips on their recording sheet.
I hope you enjoy using these activities to practice skills from the story!
